Wednesday 2nd August – afternoon
Workshop: Pachamama Despacho
Despachos may be released to spirit in three ways – buried in the earth, released into a river, or placed on the fire – the fire is the swiftest communication. The despacho ceremony is a beautiful way to connect with all that is and come into right relationship.
In August we are in the time of Lammas in the northern hemisphere and so the focus of this Pachamama Despacho will be about our gratitude for the harvest in all its manifestations. We will energise the ritual by calling upon the directions to open sacred space and get a sense of the different qualities of the life force which we work with. We will then build a beautiful despacho together, bringing our intent and our prayers as we connect soul to soul with the essence of mother earth. Holding onto this meditative focus we will process out to release our offering of gratitude via the sacred fire.
